At the foot of the stairs leading up to the attic, you are invited
to the “Dorf Intro” section of the exhibition. There are excavations
from the Bronze Age and a chronologically arranged coin
collection dating from the 12th to the 20th century, which cuts
right across the history of Bramberg. Note the “Friesacher
Pfenning” dating from the time of the Archbishop Eberhardt II.
This coin, like the Euro today, was recognised as a form of payment
virtually all over Europe.
Alongside artefacts and information about mining, craftsmanship,
woodworking, the mineral diversity of the Habach
valley and the former method of maintainence of the Salzach
River, the inhabitants of Bramberg also present their history
themselves. Stories from an original Bramberg man “Messner Hansei” in his handwritten chronicle and Marterl the unlucky
woodworker round off this exhibition.
On the western side of the museum are the rooms dedicated
to the various crafts.
